On August 1, 2019, the Senate confirmed three nominations to the Postal Service Board of Governors. The board now has a quorum which removes the need for the Temporary Emergency Committee. Having a diverse set of members on the board creates better outcomes and direction for the Postal Service.
- John McLeod Barger of California
- Ron A. Bloom of New York
- Roman Martinez IV of Florida
These three governors will be joining Chairman Robert M. Duncan, Vice Chairman David C. Williams, Postmaster General and Chief Executive Officer Megan J. Brennan, and Deputy Postmaster General and Chief Government Relations Officer Ronald A. Stroman.
The Board of Governors of the U.S. Postal Service® is similar to a board of directors of a publicly held company. They exercise the powers of the Postal ServiceTM, review its practices, conduct long-range planning, and set policies on all postal matters, in addition to other essential duties. The Board is made up of nine governors, the Postmaster General, and the Deputy Postmaster General. Governors of the Board are appointed by the President, confirmed by the Senate, and serve seven-year terms.
